Two by Four Baby Quilt
with
Sonia Walder

Repeated Class due to popularity.
This Fat Quarter friendly quilt is fun to make and goes together quite quickly. A great project if you are just beginning your quilting journey or a fun quilt to make in class if you have quilted before and just need some assistance or motivation.  You couldn’t ask for a better teacher to learn the skills required to make this gorgeous quilt. Sonia will teach you all you need to know in a friendly non threatening environment.  It is all about enjoyment as you learn.
You choose your favourite fabrics. Non directional prints work best.  You  can use directional prints, however, the design will be upside down on half the block!  This could add a quirky touch to the design.
Each pair of Fat Quarters yields 6 blocks.
Block size is 9 inches x 10.5 inches (unfinished)
This Cot size Quilt is 5 x 6 blocks – 42″ x 58″ – 10 Fat Quarters are required for this Quilt.
Of course you can make more blocks to make a larger version.

Cross Over Body Tote

Sonia Walder

Class repeated due to Popularity
Cross Body Tote – free tutorial from www.sewcanshe.com blog

This groovy bag can be whipped up using 3 Fat Quarters and 25cm of linen cut across WOF.
It has an exterior zipper pocket and interior slip pockets.
The Pattern is easy to follow and produces a handy sized bag that can be worn on the shoulder or across the body.  Sonia has adapted the bag slightly by machine quilting the outer panels.  This adds structure and texture to the look and feel of the bag.
Skills you will learn, in the construction of this Bag include – rotary cutting of fabrics, application of iron on interfacing, machine quilting and pocket making. You will also learn how to insert an enclosed exposed zip and apply a magnetic clasp…..plus many other tips and hints as always in Sonia’s Classes.

Handquilting
with

You will learn the ‘rocking’ and ‘stabbing’ method of quilting. Each student is then helped to develop their skills in the method of choice with emphasis on individual needs.  All aspects of creating a hand quilted quilt are addressed in class.  Different types of batting, threads, fabrics and needles are compared and made available for trial by students.
The successful marking and ‘sandwiching’ of the quilt is also discussed.
To utilise the full class time a prepared kit is provided for each student at a cost of $10 each (paid to Julie on the day of class).  Each kit will be marked with a design and basted ready to start quilting (how easy is that??). All threads and needles will be provided for use on the day.
